Santa Maria della Salute

"Salute" means health and salvation. 

This Venetian  church was built to celebrate  deliverance from the plague in 1630. It lies at the start of the Grand Canal.
"...some great lady on the threshold of her salon ... with her domes and scrolls, her scalloped buttresses and statues forming a pompous crown and her wide steps disposed on the ground like the train of a robe." (Henry Ja>mes).>
